SubjectRe: [PATCH] Pull NFS server address off root_server_path

That's probably true in the long term. For the short term, is the
initrd-based stuff working right now? I didn't think it was quite
there yet...

If the patch goes in now, I won't be terribly disappointed if it comes
back out, along with (most of) the rest of the ipconfig stuff, if the
initrd-based stuff works acceptably before the feature freeze...

I would think that if there's a chance that the ipconfig stuff will
stay in for 2.6, and this patch improves it, then it should probably
be merged. The patch has been in use at OzLabs for about 6 months
(since I moved the DHCP server off the NFS server :-) to help boot the
embedded boxes that David Gibson is doing bring-up work on.

peace & happiness,
